We were staying in zia for the week and went to Olympia for the Kleftiko on our second to last night, and it was by far the best food we had had in the week so far. It was so good, we went back for...the the last night and had the pork shank and prawns in a white sauce - both were spectacular. Thanks to both Mike and Johannes for the recommendation on dishes to try and for giving us the best memories of Kos. Both of them were so friendly and helpful. We think this should be number 1 on trip advisor for restaurants in Zia!! We wish them all the best for the furtureMore

Gorgeous looking restaurant with a brilliant view (might need to book ahead of time) and excellent food. The mussels were amazing, huge in portion and big on flavour

Went on a TUI trip, Zia by night. We were recommended this restaurant so decided to try it ourselves. We were not disappointed. The food was very good and the view from our table was amazing for the sunset. Our bill was very reasonable and...the staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend this place for the scenery and the food.More

We went there after seeing the sunset, we started with typical Greek starter: tzaziki, chickpeas and zucchini balls served with an Amazon sauce, stuffed wine leaves. Then we shared grilled squid. Everything was very good and the service very nice, the owner offered us the...house liquor. Very suggestedMore

I had two meals here a week apart. The first was fabulous. The second, I was welcomed back like family, and they remembered exactly what I had ordered the first time! I cannot speak highly enough of the service, the quality of food and the...friendliness of the staff. Eat here. You won't be disappointed!More

We were let down with our meal booked at Ordomedon waited over an hour and no main meal arrived, we left hungry and disappointed. Had a very quick look at the shops and then found this little gem, explained that we only had 40mins max...before our return journey. No problem was the answer and within 15 minutes we had three lovely main meals and a bottle of wine. Would really recommend this restaurant. Staff very welcoming and compared to Ordomedon they were overwhelmed and too big for that personal touch. Thank you once again Olympia for saving our evening.More
